socketing mav set help

was wondering what to put in the set
bow-shael
helm-15ias/AR
Armor-just found a cold die facet 3/4 or 15ias
also whats are good boots wearing cow kings 20dex 25mf + 15-25 dmg

edit: just saw for a 9/3 speed I need 90 ias so shaeling bow gets me there.would adding 2-15ias to hit 9/2 be worth it or add cold facet and a 40ED jewel I have be better

Gore Riders are solid boots, but the strength req is a little on the steep side. Aldurs are also popular, as are War Travelers, Waterwalks, and Sandstorm Trek.

The Grand Matron is a speed [10] bow and so needs 120 IAS to reach a 9/2 strafe. You get 40% on the bow and 30% on the Diadem so a further 50% is needed. You can get that 50 from a combination of a Cat Eye or Highlords Amulet, a shael (or IAS jewel) in the Bow and ***/15 IAS jewels in the Diadem or Armour. So it can be done but options are limited. The Mavina's Set is particularly good for a Cold Damage Zon and less so for a specialised Strafzon. So if Strafe is only a back up skill it could be better to stick with 9/3 and use the sockets for facets for extra damage.

I like the Cow Kings Boots for an Amazon, and my old 1.09 Zon still wears hers she got from the King herself, but there are other good boots like War Travs for upto 50% mf and 15-25 damage (gets multiplied by your Dex and strafe bonuses) and Gore Riders for small amounts of DS, OW and cb that can be applied fast with strafe.

I have a mav's zon that uses strafe as her main attack with frozen arrow for backup. As for my sockets i used:

Helm: 15% ias jewel
armor: 15% ias jewel

with those and a highlords you hit the 9/2 strafe break

bow: nef

Mav's is lacking knockback on any part. For a strafer/multi zon knockback will save both you and your merc's butt many times so i believe the nef in the bow is worth it.



p.s. I agree gores is a good boot choice. Yes, the str req is a bit steep but you dont really have room for crushing blow anywhere else on your equipment and even at 15% it is VERY helpful for a strafer in hell :)

how do you leech enough mana to stay shooting with this?
belt has 6%....I can't run without a min of 17-20% ml
MANA leech sucks in 1.10


and the best ias jewel I have seen is 12ias with some junk other mods.
I think after the mass 40/15 off ladder in 09 ....buzzard is not going
to give us anything usefull like this again.

I guess he'll use at least one dual leech ring as life and mana leech are missing. Strafe only costs 11 mana and the belt should be Mavina's belt to keep that going but FA will need more leech. I guess the tactic will be to alternate the FA with Strafe cycles to re-charge mana.

An IAS jewel can only have the Fevour suffix for 15% IAS ... so your memory is not serving you well :hanky: And 40/15 jewels are still theoretically available on the ladder although I have yet to find one or re-roll one with better than 7% ED / 15 IAS :(

yea, i use a dual leecher. Took me forever to trade for one and its only a 5/4 life/mana but it suits my purposes. Ravenfrost is my 2nd ring.

Before i got ahold of that i actually ran a manald and a cathans :)

And, like said above, the only ias jewels i ever find are 15% ias, no more no less...



p.s. my jewels are vanilla ias jewels. The build could probably be tweaked with better ones (good 2nd mods) but i dont trade for 40/15's etc. and so only really used jewels i'd found.

Leeching

I had exactly the same problem...

a) Give your merc Reapers Toll or chance to Amp polearm...you will fill your bowl with FA then

b) I use Crescent moon coupled with the belt gives me all my leeching reqs

Also try Goblin Toe boots...the CB rocks.

Matt...
